  1. Very, very interesting that not only Bednar got it wrong, but so did Joseph Smith and the holy, inspired, most correct book upon the face of the earth, Book of Mormon.

    Good catch there Skyler! Bravo!

  2. Skylar. Could you do a podcast on the exorcism and demon manifestations at the “June conference” when the high priesthood was given. Or the prior exorcism when the church was organized. ?

  3. Another significant change within the Sermon on the Mount that Joseph Smith made in his “translation” of the Bible is found in Matt. 5:41. The KJV of Matt. 5:41 reads as it does in 3 Nephi 12:41, “And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” However, in the Joseph Smith Translation (also known as the “Inspired Version,” the full text of which can be read on the internet) of Matt. 5:41 reads, “And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him a mile; and whosoever shall compel thee to go with him twain, thou shalt go with him twain.” Did Jesus say what is in the KJV and Book of Mormon or in the JST version? The sense has shifted from “do more than required” (KJV and Book of Mormon) to “do only what is required” (JST).
